Man killed after boats collide off Angel Island
A Contra Costa man died last week after a boating collision off Angel Island threw him into the water and left his boat spinning out of control.
The San Francisco Medical Examiner’s Office identified the man as 65-year-old Michael Wells. The S.F. Police Department and the Marin County Sheriff’s Office were investigating the June 30 incident.
The collision between Wells’ 25-foot center-console motorboat and a sailboat was reported to the U.S. Coast Guard shortly after 2 p.m. Coast Guard Petty Officer Taylor Bacon said Wells was ejected, leaving the boat unmanned and spinning in the water about halfway between Angel Island and Sausalito.
